CCA Announces New Warden at Stewart Detention Center
"It's an exciting new assignment for me," said warden Stacey N. Stone
Lumpkin, GA. – CCA, America's leader in partnership corrections, recently named Stacey N. Stone as warden to the Stewart Detention Center. Stone assumes the position from Mike Swinton, who has been appointed to Vice President and Chief Operating Officer at TransCor America, LLC.
As warden, Stone will oversee the independently accredited 1,700 bed facility located in Lumpkin, GA. Formerly the warden at the North Georgia Detention Center, where he managed 160 employees and oversaw the facility's activation in 2009, Stone sees his new post as an exciting opportunity.
"I'm looking forward to broadening my experience with CCA and working with the great people employed at the Stewart facility," says Stone. "It's an exciting new assignment for me."
Stone first joined the CCA team in 2005 as chief of security at CCA's McRae Correctional Facility, in McRae, Georgia, where he swiftly rose to the position of assistant warden. Throughout his time at CCA, Stone has exhibited strong leadership and dedication to serving the community where he works.
Prior to working for CCA, Stone spent nine years with the Georgia Department of Corrections. In 2003, Stone received the Governor's Public Safety Award for Heroism. Previous to his 16-year career in corrections, Stone served in the Georgia Army National Guard for 12 years.
